This is an American groove metal band that is better to watch than listen to. If only because at the beginning of their history, two frontwomen of the band performed on the stage completely naked. Now, 10 years after the start of Butcher Babies, they have become calmer… and dressed. And yes — they continue to release new albums, which are destroyed by music critics, but delight the inhabitants of deep America — farmers and simple rednecks.
Butcher Babies is an American heavy metal band from Los Angeles, California, United States, consisting of frontwomen Heidi Shepherd and Carla Harvey, guitarist Henry Flury (Amen), bassist Ricky Bonazza, and drummer Chase Brickenden. Their debut album, Goliath, was released on July 9, 2013 via Century Media Records. It sold 3,300 copies in the US during its first week of release and charted at No. 3 on the Billboard Heatseeker chart and No. 112 on the Billboard 200.
According to the musicians of Butcher Babies, they looked for inspiration for their first songs in the work of such bands as Marilyn Manson, Slayer and Slipknot. Also, the musicians constantly watched horror films: «Texas Chainsaw Massacre», «House of 1000 Corpses» and «The Devil’s Rejects».
Frontwoman Heidi Shepherd speaking:
«This song is the result of the environment in which it was created. It was like I was the guy in the corner of the bar who tells stories from his past. I have been in this situation several times, so the lyrics of my song just flowed by itself. This song has a special place in my heart, precisely because of these memories»
The musicians also explain why the single has such a light sound, not at all like the sound of the Butcher Babies before. This is because now they are middle-aged family people, they are 35, and the desire to scream has disappeared by itself.
Let’s say from ourselves that the musicians are cunning — it is obvious that you cannot pay for a mortgage with metal, and the group became a pop-rock product simply out of the desire to get a solvent omnivorous audience.
